What kind of PT boot are you looking for? Calf/suede, color etc.

Im mostly eying a smooth side brown leather that will patina well- not rough out or scotch grain for sure. Maybe oil pull or aniline finished, like CXL. If I could afford and get em I'd go for ravello shell, but after reading this whole thread it sounds like it just ain't to be... Your Indy order get fulfilled? That's a beautiful boot man!

I've actually never owned Alden's, but my search for a perfect PT (or possibly cap toe) boot has led me here smile.gif seems like the ordering and selection process is a pain in the arse compared to some bootmakers like Whites (which is what I've gone with in the past). But when i peeped a pair of PT ML boots in #8 somewhere online recently, it all seemed to make sense to me.

Now, just trying to learn what I can, and save up!

b-ewing, have you called moulded shoes about a resole to neocork?

Plain toe boot on modified is a good combination for sure.

Kudu Indy is still pending confirmation.

The ravello modified pt boot is my holy grail. I've been on the order list at Anatomica Paris since Sept. Still waiting for that order to be confirmed as well.

If that was a 12 I would be trying to scrape together $750...

I'm due to call Rafael, after a few back and fourth emails. Seems to be a very approachable and customer oriented guy, which is great. Neocork appears like a doable option seeing as their Indy is built with it.

Hey folks,

 

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I have posted this on the Casual forum  and gotten no answers.  I figure my fellow fat footed Modified Last fans would have some wisdom on this question. 

 

I wear the 9.5 EEE Modified Last and it fits well.  A will be a fan of Moulded Shoe for a long time.

 

My question:  any recommendation for tennis/casual shoes for those of us with fat feet?  I love the Modified Last but it isnt always the best for weekend casual stuff.

 

Thanks

My Modified last Aldens are casual shoes (except the NSTs). What exactly are you talking about? Jeans, shorts, athletic wear? What are you pairing the shoes with?

Thanks PhiPsi,

I want to wear shorts this summer. I live in nyc and it gets hot. Tennis shoes, boat shoes, canvas shoes....? Any casual wide shoe that doesnt look hideous.

I want some casual aldens, too, but they dont seem that casual.....

Boat shoes and loafers.  Try Quoddy, Rancourt, or Allen Edmonds.
